Do you, like, speak, like, like a teenager, I mean, like, do you, like?

“Actress Emma Thompson says young people make themselves sound stupid by speaking slang outside of school. But while the use of the word “like” might annoy her, it fulfils a useful role in everyday speech.”

“Actress Emma Thompson”?

Have you like, even heard of her?  She is sooo, like, old!


Does Emma’s outrage put you off using fillers like “like”, “dju know wadI mean” (do you know what I mean)?

Or are you happy to buy time mming and ahhhing, and throwing in words with no meaning?

What’s your favourite filler?
